What material is the backsplash? Marble?
your kitchen's materials palette.Choose a countertop that's durable and easy to clean. Justrich recommends looking into granite or composite materials like Caesarstone first. For a bigger statement, go for stainless steel, zinc or natural wood. Aim for light, smooth and reflective materials. Large-format
tiles or slabs of stone will minimize grout lines and create a smooth and easy-to-clean surface. Kelly recommends sticking with a single countertop material, with a slight variation at the pantry or island, for consistency and simplicity.

3. Include materials to create with. Don't restrict your child to just crayons. Providing a wide array of creative materials without giving specific instructions on how to use them will boost your child's creativity. Create
